Thanks everyone who has responded. I have done some additional research based upon your responses .
The PI Amfib XXLs are to small for my shoe also, hard to believe they are "XXL".
The Lake Winter Shoes look really nice, the new pairs run about $149.00 new on E-Bay, a little pricey but they look warm and waterproof.
I talked to my LBS and another guy from Performance about the Gators. Neither places carried them, both recommended them, however they could order them. Price was about $50. For the price these look to be better bang for the buck then the Lake Winter Shoes (assuming they keep the wind and water out).
Performance didn't have any of their booties for size 13, these look like a good option also, price $24.99 on sale. Durable???
As for the Trek Booties, I could not find any in size XXL, however the XL booties where WAY to small, I question wether the XXL would be big enough. $39.99
Also, I came across a set of Louis Garneau Protect Booties. These look to be sized comparable to the BellWeathers that just failed on me, however they use Velcro in the back and are stretchy. Being stretchy and considering that Velcro is a little more forgiving the zippers, I think these may work. Will investigate, on sale right now at Performance at $19.99, they where out of stock on the XL size.
As a temporary solution, I picked up a set of Performance Toesties Toe Warmers. These cover the front and top part of the shoe, which for me is of the most concern. I figure if nothing else I can throw in toe warmer and just deal with my feet getting wet quicker in rainy weather. $11.99 on sale. These might end up being all that I need, if not I figure they will hold me over till I get a set that completely covers the shoe.
Thanks everyone for the feedback.
